Taking a look at Jeremy Swayman's new contract

Published August 3, 2023 at 3:48 PM

Friday's arbitration proceedings between Jeremy Swayman and the Boston Bruins took an unexpected turn as both parties presented vastly different contract asks, prompting the intervention of an arbitrator.

Tuesday brought the much-awaited verdict, and Swayman's contract for the upcoming season has been finalized.

According to the decision, Swayman's contract stands at $3.475 million.

The 24-year-old goaltender demonstrated his mettle last season, recording an impressive 24-6-4 record in 37 games, including four shutouts, a 2.27 goals-against average, and a .920 save percentage.

With only 88 games of NHL experience spread across three seasons, Swayman's initial ask of $4.8 million was ambitious. However, both parties have now reached a compromise at $3.475 million, securing Swayman's place in the Bruins' lineup for the upcoming year.

As the young netminder continues to grow and excel, fans and analysts will be closely monitoring his performance, anticipating more outstanding moments between the pipes.
